Why is attending PCDC important?

The world of diabetes is changing rapidly. Just in the last year there have been several landmark studies that have come out that are likely to change the way we manage people with diabetes. Really the acceleration of knowledge and acquisition of new knowledge is at an unprecedented rate, and meetings like Patient-Centered Diabetes Care provide a venue to be able to share that. I think the other wonderful thing about the meeting that I enjoy, is that it brings different stakeholders together to really discuss solutions around how to improve diabetes care.
